Identity and security company Nexus Group is certified according to the ISO 27001:2013 standard by the accredited certification company RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden AB). “This is an important milestone for Nexus. We are trailblazers when it comes to the convergence between physical and digital access, and this certification recognizes our commitment to managing and protecting this area for our customers and partners in the best way possible,” says Lars Pettersson, CEO of Nexus.
Following the internationally recognized information security standard, Nexus ensures that it lives up to laws and requirements, and that it has established a risk management process.
“As an identity and security company, information security is paramount to us. Our ISO 27001 certification is a confirmation that Nexus’s continuous information security efforts meet the high requirements set by this standard,” says Pettersson.
The certification sends a clear message
The ISO 27001 certification means that Nexus has taken a holistic approach to the company’s information security and will continue to develop to keep up with both internal and external changes. ISO 27001 also provides tools to avoid violations of laws, regulations, requirements and contractual obligations.
“With the certification, we minimize potential security risks and protect both our own and our customers’ information assets. Being ISO 27001 certified also sends an important message to all our stakeholders: It is a quality stamp that ensures that Nexus has good control over processes and procedures for managing information assets,” says Peter Hellström, CIO/CSO at Nexus.
A part of the Smart ID strategy
It has taken Nexus nearly a year to implement ISO 27001 and to develop the platform for a systematic and proactive approach.
“The ISO 27001 certification is a very important investment and a part of our strategy to spread our Smart ID solution even wider, and thus becoming an even more significant provider of identity and security solutions for physical and digital access,” says Pettersson.
